  • New stewards are elected roughly once per year. Stewards perform technical tasks on all Wikimedia wikis based on community consensus and on the Steward policy: changing user access, viewing user information in cases of abuse, and so on (see details).
  • For more information on voting, translating, or being a candidate, read the guidelines. You can automatically check your eligibility to vote.
  • Candidate submissions are open from 15 January 2013, 00:00 until 28 January 2013, 23:59 (UTC). Questions to the candidates can be submitted until the election concludes.
  • The voting will begin on 8 February 2013, 00:00 and end 27 February 2013, 23:59 (UTC). Candidates must meet the criteria and obtain at least 30 votes in favor with an 80% support ratio. You can track the results with collected statistics.
  • The confirmation process of the current stewards is being held in parallel.
